CIM Training Week 10 of 12: Peak Week?

“Peak Week 1” LOLZ. I don’t know if I’m peaking, or just feel “peak-ed”. With Thanksgiving upon us, I can’t help but get in the mindset of feeling grateful for a lot of things in my life. In terms of

CIM Training Week 1 (of 12)

I’ve been staying away from weekly training recaps, because I think they tend to be a bit dry, but I’ll make an exception for CIM training because I usually like to go back and read details on how a particular

Mon: 60 min strengthening/stretching/rolling. Tues: Every once in a while, I have a truly terrible run. Tuesday was one of those days. I had to go to the gym to change my billing information, thanks to some jerks who stole
